INSTAGRAM SECURITY CHECK YOU SHOULD DO FREQUENTLY

This might seem like such a simple post, and you may even skip over it. But if your account gets hacked, you'll wish you had read this and done this easy security check.


+ EMAIL ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER


Every once in awhile, it's a good practice to verify that the email address and phone number associated with your Instagram account is still accurate contact information. This will help you easily reset your password, get security notifications, and more.


+ LOGIN ACTIVITY


Want to know who is currently logged into your account? This setting is about to be your best friend! Whether you manage your account alone or you work with a remote team across the country, Login Activity is a quick and easy way to verify who is logged into your account and where. See login activity you don't recognize? Simply log them out.


+ TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION


This is a feature that helps you protect your account and your password. If you set up two-factor authentication, you will be sent a login code and prompted to enter it each time you access to your account. This is particularly useful in preventing others from logging in without your permission.


+ APPS AND WEBSITES


Saving the best for last! Chances are, you probably have no clue which apps and websites are linked to your Instagram account. And that's okay! You can check to see which are connected to your Instagram and which can access your non-public information. See something that shouldn't have access? Simply edit -- or remove -- the permission altogether!
